Bonner County and Bonner County Fair officials have spent the past year planning the fair and working to make this year's event the best one yet.
The Bonner County Fair doesn't charge an entry fee. While there is a $3 parking fee, the proceeds are split between those school and youth groups which work the gates and a scholarship fund. For the past several years, the fair has been able to fund four $1,750 scholarships — all thanks to the public paying the parking fee.
The Bonner County Fair runs today through Saturday and is held at the Bonner County Fairgrounds, 4203 N. Boyer Road.
